A Brother is a Treasure

This is what I tell the boys on a regular basis. Mostly when they fight, but I am trying to remind them when they are happily playing together as well. Ethan recently told me how he felt sad for his little friend. When I asked him why he said, “Because he doesn’t have a brother.” It was the look on his face and the way he said it, I knew he had put himself in his friends shoes and really thought about it.

I hope these three grow up to be close and always remember how fortunate they are to have each other.

Lincoln is a “walker” now. He chooses walking over crawling.

1st Grade Thanksgiving Play

Now this was enjoyable! The kids looked too cute and did a great job on their lines. Ethan flashed me a nervous smile from time to time. The students quoted Psalms 34:8-19 and sang several songs with one boy really taking the spotlight! 🙂 He sang much louder that the rest of the kids and seemed so proud to be doing his best! Kids are great. Why do they have to turn into teenagers?

Pre-K Thanksgiving Party

A small room filled with more than a dozen 4-year-old Indians can be quite overwhelming! They had a great time eating lots of sugary foods (which only made the craziness worse) making a craft (the cool turkey hat) and singing lots of cute songs for the Moms.

Look at these similar profiles!

Oh, they are watching Praise Baby…Lincoln’s favorite thing! He especially loves the giraffes. We are having his 1st birthday giraffe themed.

Random Pictures of the Little One

Mac-N-Cheese and Peas…Yummy!

Uh-Oh those brothers left the craft drawer open again!

Helping Mommy clean under the stove. This is not a job I get to very often! In fact, the only reason I happened to clean it this night was that I spilled cinnamon and sugar all of the counter and down the crack of the stove! What a mess. Oh well, it entertained Lincoln for a good long time.

Two more eyes for Isaac

Doesn’t he look handsome, smart, and so grown up!?

It looks as if Isaac will need to wear glasses for a couple of years. We are hoping this will correct his eye problem and he won’t need them later.

Isaac was all smiles during his eye exam. Even while getting drops to dilate his eyes! Ethan leaned over and whispered in my ear, “Mom, Isaac should be this brave at home!” Very true.

After picking the frames I went to the counter to pay for everything. It was quite expensive, but worth every penny to help Isaac’s eyes. Ethan didn’t see it that way…when he heard the total he whispered again, “Mom, Dad’s going to be so mad!” Of course, he wasn’t mad at all.

Checking himself out! Lookin’ good! They even came with an orange (Isaac’s favorite color) case. Isaac calls it his, “glasses suitcase.”

Just like Mommy! I recently got glasses for driving. That’s the only time I wear them. Isaac was excited to get his glasses because they are “just like Mommy’s.”

Ethan’s Chess Lesson

Ethan struggles with learning new concepts. Once he understands something he will always remember it. This was a good exercise in patience for Warren!

Matching

I miss the days of matching Ethan and Isaac. I had a lot of fun and it sure made for some adorable pictures! Now that they are older it just isn’t as cute anymore. Someday they will look at this picture and wonder how a loving mother could do this to them. 🙂 Just thought I would try it one more time…

Actually, they have a couple matching sweaters for winter. Hopefully they will look better than the plaid pants. Maybe that’s why this picture looks a little silly to me.

Having a ball!

Ball pits, dark tunnels, slides, swings, being tossed in the air, you name it, Lincoln loves it! His personality shows itself more and more with each day. What a brave, fun baby!
